The NDIS was rolled out in Victoria from July 2016.
We did it in stages so current and new disability service providers had time to prepare. This meant a smoother transition for people with disability and their families and carers.
The NDIS is now available in your area of Victoria.

Early Childhood, Early Intervention
The Early Childhood, Early Intervention (ECEI) approach is available to all children aged 0-6 years with a developmental delay or disability across Victoria.
An ECEI coordinator will be your main contact point for the NDIS. They will help you understand and access the most appropriate supports for your child.
Local Area Coordinators
For most people aged 7 and above, a local area coordinator (LAC) will be your main contact point for the NDIS.
